Hi. My name is Sean Rosen, and here’s some of what’s in this book: 1. Two big Hollywood studios fight over my movie. 2. I get asked (by Coach Obester!) to join the track team. 3. I show you a very cool scene from the screenplay for my movie. 4. My neighbors leave me in charge of their dog, Baxter. The craziest part of the story. 5. I’m pretty sure the scariest guy in show business is trying to steal my best idea. A lot happens. It’s funny. It’s exciting. If you didn’t read my first book, don’t worry. You will like this book. If you did read it, you’ll like this one even more. I promise.
Sean Rosen knows what he wants. A ten-million dollar deal with a big Hollywood studio. The only problem is, he doesn’t know a single person in show business. He and his mom (a nurse) and his dad (a plumber) live far away from Los Angeles or New York. Figuring it out as he goes, using only his laptop and his phone, Sean makes amazing progress in his quest, which no one else has a clue about. Except you, if you read this book. It’s good. And it’s funny. Trust me. I should know, because I represent Sean Rosen. You can visit Sean Rosen’s site, too! www.seanrosen.com From seanrosenbooks.com: Jeff Baron grew up in suburban New Jersey, the son of a secretary and a clothing salesman. The first in his family to go to college, Jeff got a film degree from Northwestern University, where his comedy writing and lyrics were frequently performed on and off campus. He worked for the skiing trade association for a few years, then got an MBA from Harvard Business School. During his two years at Coca-Cola, Jeff managed the creation and introduction of Ramblin’ Root Beer. He left to become a Marketing Director for Warner Amex Satellite Entertainment Company, which became MTV Networks. He left the corporate world when his dad became seriously ill, while Jeff was still in his 20’s.

These look great!
I want a set for myself!!
Thank you for such a great giveaway.
You’re welcome, Roy!
As a kindergarten teacher, I wish I could spend my days just reading and sharing great books with my little ones. However, I know how important it is for them to ‘own the words, too’ so it is exciting to watch my kinder-bears as they recognize words and begin to read. As a grandmother of an 8 year old, Nate, in Kentucky, I know he would be so excited to be introduced to more great books by Jeff Baron since he has read the entire Big Nate series already.
Sounds like a lovely idea, Betsy. I think he’d enjoy the Sean Rosen books!
What a fun story idea! This is hilarious! I have to read this book. Thanks for the giveaway!
Great concept for a series, right?
I would love to add these books to our school library.
They’d be a great addition! Good luck in the raffle!
These would be great in my classroom!
Your students would love them, I’m sure!
hooray for give-aways that get books into the hands of kids that will read them and need to read them.
Thanks for the great giveaway. Tweeting about it now! :)
